Kayak Interactive today announced that it has acquired the assets of Chasma Interactive Publishing, based in New Hampshire. The acquisition expands Kayak's portfolio of offered products with several products already in the distribution channel as well as two key properties to be launched in the near future, Slingo, and the TV show based Poker Superstars Invitational Tournament.

"We are very excited to be working with the people at Chasma and we are already putting in place distribution plans for the upcoming Slingo® and Poker Superstars Invitational TournamentTM products" said Keith McCurdy, President and CEO of Kayak. "The existing Chasma products and the additional products in development were a perfect fit with our market strategy and assessment of consumer adoption. We will continue to support and distribute the existing released products in the channel, as well as bring our publishing and distribution capabilities to bear on the launching of Slingo® and Poker Superstars Invitational TournamentTM."

"We are very enthusiastic about this opportunity with Kayak" said Tom Dusenberry, CEO of Chasma. "The team at Kayak understands mobile gaming and the power of our licensed properties and products. We are excited to be working with them, and are confident that their additional distribution and publishing capabilities will make all these products a great success in the marketplace".

Two months ago, Kayak announced the merger with Swedish based mobile games publisher Synergenix Interactive. The addition of Synergenix to Kayak added an extensive European distribution network with agreements in place with over 40 major carriers and distribution partners, industry leading product development expertise and product pipeline, and the mobile game industry's top game mobile game development technology, mohpunTM (
